Topology is the map that shows relationships between the components in your IT environment. In today’s world, that map is big, fast–changing and hard to understand. Old approaches can’t keep up.
StackState’s approach tracks every change in topology and correlates it with system-wide telemetry data in real time and over time. The secret sauce? Our 4T® Data Model, which leads to better outcomes to five essential challenges.
Five Use Cases for Topology-Powered Observability
1. Unify, Correlate and Visualize
Full stack visibility unlike anything you’ve seen
Can you see your entire IT environment as it changes second by second, through a single pane of glass?
StackState is purpose-built to integrate quickly with other data sources. It combines siloed telemetry and enriches it with time-series topology data so you can see cause and effect everywhere across your stack.
2. Find Root Cause
Troubleshoot in record time and reduce MTTR
Can you pinpoint the exact cause of problems in your increasingly complex platforms? When something breaks, “What (expletive) changed!?” is the first question that gets asked. If you can't see how your topology is changing over time, you're flying blind.
Topology-Powered Observability tracks dependencies and configuration changes over time to deliver the context you need to find the needle in the telemetry haystack. Stop wasting time blamestorming in war rooms and start fixing faster, with better data and a smarter approach.
3. Reduce Alert Noise
Save time and money by correlating events
In the middle of an alert storm, which alerts matter? Are you wasting resources chasing things that don’t matter?
StackState’s Topology-Powered Observability understands the upstream changes that cause downstream problems. It uses that insight to logically group related alerts and prioritizes the ones that need your attention.
4. Determine Business Impact
Understand how IT issues effect your customers
How do failures deep in your stack impact specific customers, services and lines of business? What is the business priority to fix an issue and who needs to be involved?
When a component anywhere in your stack has an issue, Topology-Powered Observability shows you the consequences, from dependent components that are impacted to the business services that falter. See the impact and control the situation.
5. Prevent Problems Proactively
Use advanced monitors and AI-powered anomaly detection to avoid failures
Can you spot the anomalies in your environment before they become costly problems?
StackState combines Topology-Powered Observability and AIOps, giving you the innovative new capabilities you need to eliminate problems before they impact your users.

4T Data Model: 4 Essential Dimensions of Observability
StackState combines four dimensions of observability data into a single data fabric: Topology, Traces, Telemetry and Time. Our powerful 4T Data Model is enabled by a versioned graph database that stores relationships between objects, correlated with each object’s telemetry and trace data, at every moment in time. StackState’s 4T Data Model delivers insight into your entire IT landscape by capturing every millisecond of change, from any source, and visualizing your stack both historically and in real time.
Unify Observability for Your Entire IT Environment
StackState ingests telemetry data (metrics, events and logs) from all of your IT systems - such as monitoring, provisioning, deployment and configuration management tools - as well as from StackState’s own agent. Out-of-the-box StackPacks support more than 65 integrations to your favorite technologies.
